LAW STUDENT DIVISION of the AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION The Law student Division of the Am- erican Bar Association offers the in- dividual law student a unique opportu- nity to expand and broaden his legal education through participation in a wide variety of worthwhile programs. The many activities of the Law Student Division are specifically designed to orientate the student with regard to the professional role that he will eventually assume in society upon his graduation from law school. The pur- pose of the Law Student Division is to make each of its members a better law student and subsequently a better law- yer—a purpose which is accomplished through a coordinated effort between the Division and the American Bar Asso- ciation. The format of programs made avail- able by the Law Student Division to each of its members is extensive, with each program designed to supplement a particular aspect of a law student's education. Among these are an out- standing national placement service wh...

PHI ALPHA DELTA The Samuel Houston Chapter of Phi Alpha Delta continues, this fall, to stress scholarship, professionalism and participation by all students in the important legal events of the commu- nity. It is always the goal of PAD to offer the students of South Texas Col- lege of Law, and especially its mem- bers and pledges, a calendar which blends appropriately events and activ- ities of considerable professional and social value and interest. Many of the chapter's eighty - plus members have made outstanding contri- butions to the school as well as the fraternity1s national prominence. We look with pride to the work of PAD Alumnus C. Raymond Judice, Judge of Corporation Court No. 3 and PAD Na- tional Supreme Historian, and member Rob Evans in producing the official Phi Alpha Delta History. Each year PAD awards fifteen $500.00 scholarships to members from the hundred-plus chapters. Each recipient must have made out- standing contributions to his school, chapter, and to "Nation...

1 DELTA THETA PHI Delta Theta Phi National Law Fra- ternity established E.E. Townes Senate at South Texas College of Law in 1956, and presently consists of 160 members and pledges. It is the oldest and largest fraternity at South Texas. At the beginning of each school year there are several functions pre- sented by Delta Theta Phi for the bene- fit and enjoyment of the new student as well as for those more advanced students. On September 12th and 13th, in an effort to help students save money on books, the Delt Lounge, room 360, was made available to all students who had books to sell. This service, for which there was no charge, resulted in the sale of more than $1400 in used books, outlines, etc. On Saturday, September 21, in Fra- ternity Brother Judge Fred Hooey's courtroom in the Criminal Courts Build- ing, Delta Theta Phi sponsored a very successful freshman orientation pro- gram. The program was co-sponsored by Charles Cate and Tony Guarisco. Some of the topics discussed by in...

TAX cont'd Items in dispute, the facts control- ling the matter in controversy, cita- tions to the applicable law, and a discussion as to the proper treatment of the items. The purpose of the District confer- ence is to try to resolve the contro- versy on a mutually satisfactory basis* If an agreement is not reached with the District Conferee, or if a taxpayer does not wish to attend a District conference, he may request a hearing with the Appellate Division which is a part of the Regional Commissioner 's office. The Appellate Division offers the final administrative hearing within the IRS. The function of the Appellate Division is to consider protested cas- es for the purpose of resolving the contested issues on a basis that is fiar and impartial, both to the tax- payer and the Government, without the necessity of litigation. All of the administrative appeal steps within the IRS are voluntary. The taxpayer may choose to completely bypass all administrative appeals and take his case...

ANI VOTATIO WSJ ^XSouth J\\Texas ípür Volume XV, No. 4 1303 San Jacinto, Houston, Texas 77002 December, 1986 Missouri Family Law Expert Relates Basics to Students Divorce lawyers have a sacred obligation to try to preserve the marriages that come before them for dissolution, Missouri family law expert Jack Cochran said dur- ing his address to a family law class at South Texas College of Law recently. His speech was titled, "The Divorce Worm: To Eat Or Be Eaten." "The ultimate achievement of a divorce lawyer is to not have a divorce," he said. "I want to assure you from handling thou- sands and thousands of divorce cases that there is nothing more traumatic than the explosion of a family." The lawyer should at- tempt to defuse the client's anger in the first consultation if their work together is to be construc- tive, he advises. It also is impor- tant in the first interview, he said, for the lawyer to begin the process of developing reasonable expecta- tions as the ultimate goal for...

Page 2 -ANNOTATIONS — December, 1986 EDITORIAL/OPINION Something Odd.... Something odd is going on at South Texas. Much of the intrigue, trash and con- troversy that has been brewing and boiling for the past few months has either evaporated or is on a low simmer. Strange. Everyone seems too preoccupied to stir up any mischief. It must be getting close to time for finals. In with the new .... The end of a semester means different things to different people. For some it will mean, (finally) graduating. That last exam done, law school in the bag, now the work of preparing for the bar (take your pick which kind) begins. To those leaving this happy little law school nest, we send with you our congratulations and a good luck wish on the "big one" in February. For others, it marks yet another semester, "middle-schoolers" who have many, many (ad infinitum) more semesters to go with more exams to study for, worry over, and often cry about when all is said and done. To those students we tip a...

December, 1986 ANNOTATIONS - Page 3 The Price of Dropping Out By C.E. Roberts This semester a pilot English course was initiated to help stu- dents perfect their writing skills. The class was limited to 20 stu- dents. By the end of the second week, 10 students remained in the course. I was embarrassed by the reflec- tion this has on the school: Because those 10 or so people who dropped out feel they did not need this course, other students were denied the opportunity to enroll. have been a writer for many years. I have won best sports writer in the nation, been in Who's Who and have had numerous arti- cles, stories and papers published in professional publications. Yet, I did not feel that this course was beneath me. Quite the contrary, I believe that I still have much to learn. What is surprising, or may not be so surprising, is that the students who have kept up with the course are primarily those who can write well but wish to improve their techniques. As Professor Douglas Mitche...

December, 1986 — ANNOTATIONS PageS Tort Reform: The Insurance Industry's "Crisis" By Kathryn Diaz Much has been said about the current "litigation" crisis and how it has crippled the insurance indus- try's ability to keep premiums down. Those seeking insurance complain that adequate protection is getting harder to find and much too expensive. These insureds are being told by the insurance com- panies that the reason for this is the "litigation explosion". The in- surance industry, in a not so subtle strategy of diversion, has targeted lawyers, juries and plaintiffs as culprits in an effort to lay the blame for the industry's own financial woes. The insurance industry is at- tempting to create the elaborate il- lusion that the industry is suffering because of exorbitant jury awards. All of this "thou doth protest too much" rhetoric by the insurance interests begs two major ques- tions: First, is the financial prob- lem faced in the insurance sector a result, as it claims, of high jur...

December, 1986 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 7 MOVIE REVIEW By Anne Cherrington I saw The Color of Money the day it opened: In fact, I went to the early show because 1 was so anxious to see it. Well, I'm glad I went to the $2.50 feature and didn't show the ticket seller the color of $5 of my money because The Color of Money was a big disappointment. There were two major stumbling blocks for me: one, I never saw The Hustler, the predecessor to the current film, and two, I simply did not care for the characters or the subject matter of this movie. "Fast Eddie" Felson (played by the extremely sexy Paul Newman), former pool hustler turned successful liquor salesman, stumbles across a hot shot youngster in a pool hall one day. Vincent Lauria (played by Tom Cruise with a bouffant hairdo) reminds Eddie of himself in his younger days. Vince's youth, talent and innocence excites Eddie. He sees Vince as a younger version of himself and sets out to create a faster, cooler, tougher, slicker, pool hustle...

Page 8 ANNOTATIONS December, 1986 Tort... Cont. from pg 5 Tort Reform Insurers want legislators to pass tort reform packages which would severely limit compensation to vic- tims. Tort reforms will not guar- antee lower insurance premiums, however. Most of the proposals at- tempt to limit recovery for non- economic damage awards — pain and suffering, for example. In- surers also want to place limits on punitive damages, imposed to deter a defendant from irresponsible behavior. The industry also wants to elim- inate the doctrine of joint and several liability becáuse, it is claimed, this encourages plaintiffs to go after multiple defendants with heavy insurance coverage, the so called "deep pockets" theory of recovery. California has already passed such a measure, eliminating Joint and Several liability for pain and suffering damages. In addition to these limitations, the insurance in- dustry also seeks a limit on lawyer contingency fees in personal injury cases. What the insurance in...

December, 1986 — ANNOTATIONS — Page 9 Counseling ...... ConU from page 1 what other Texas law schools are doing in an effort to keep their stu- dent "body" healthy in "mind": UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON LAW CENTER Law student counseling is gen- erally within the purview of the Director of Student Services, Marian Plain. Unlike her prede- cessor, the newly appointed Ms. Plain has no formal training in counseling. "I do what 1 feel like I can do [regarding student emo- tional counseling]", says Plain. "I talk with them as one person to another ... I don't just leave them hanging." She mentioned that students with minor problems probably talk it over with other classmates, or a sympathetic facul- ty member on an ad hoc basis. Like South Texas College of Law, the only "formal" counseling of- fered by the law school itself is directed toward academic guid- ance. Faculty members, according to Ms. Plain, handle most of those problems as they arise. Unlike STCL, however, the Uni- versity of Houst...

A joint initiation of the South Texas College of Law E.E. Townes Senate and the University of Houston CuQen Senate organized the event for their Fall Semester initiation. Several members of the Houston Alumni were present including In- ternational Vice Chancellor Ken Burns, Judge David Hittner, present Alumni Dean Ron Hayes, and past Alumni Dean Neal Calnan. After the initiation, Judge Hittner allowed the Delta Theta Phi members to tour through his chambers, and see the extensive security system designed to protect the federal judges and their staffs.

Law Week is slated for March 9-14, 1987. Darrell Apffel, Reva Morton, Sue Norman and D'Lisa Simmons are working with Professor Han- son Lawton to outline a format for the week. Preliminary plans call for a kick-off reception, a night honoring the judiciary, a "VIP" night, a program from a member of the International Trade Com- mission and a "fun" night featur- ing a "Battle of the Bands" — with performances by legal-pro- fession-related bands. The week will close on Saturday, March 14 with daytime fun-and-games and nighttime honors at the annual Spring Banquet.

Cont.frompage9 For those problems which are too serious for the law school pro- gram to handle — those problems requiring extended counseling by a professional — the law students are referred to one of the several full-time psychological counselors on the main campus of St. Mary's University. The law school main- tains contact with the student to follow his/her progress. BAYLOR UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL Like the University of Houston Law Center, Baylor College of Law lacks a counseling program centered at the law school. In- stead, students are referred direct- ly to the Campus Health Center and one of its three full-time pro- fessionally trained counselors. The Baylor program does not end there, however. This fall, Baylor initiated a new counseling program called "Wellness Aware- ness", headed by Dr. Nancy Good- lowe. Although the program is campus-wide, Dr. Goodlowe noted that "law students and other pro- fessional students have di...

December, 1986 — ANNOTA TIONS — Page 13 Gravitations Cont. from page 3 Curiously enough the matter was left open at Geneva a year ago. And going into the Reykjavik summit it was not clear what the U.S. posi- tion would be. Nor, according to the official accounts from both sides, was it clarified in the first day's sessions. The second day, evidently to make it manifest that the U.S. had formally abandoned the traditional in- terpretation, Gorbachev added the new demand: that the treaty be "strengthened" by limiting even research (the phase before development and testing) to what could be accomplished in the laboratory. The U.S. negative to this was inevitable, and Gorbachev was off the hook on the proposal to eliminate all ballistics missiles within 10 years. U.S. abandon- ment of the traditional interpretation a year earlier had made the Gor- bachev demand a reasonably "credible" one. If the foregoing scenario is right, and I think it is, then it was Gor- bachev who won the exchang...
